@bottlesnblondes These muffins are so good! My husband and my kids gobble them up! They barely last in our house. Having breakfast ready to go makes the mornings run so much more smoothly. And having a healthy snack like this ready to go to pop in the diaper bag is a life saver 🙌🏻
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pumpkin Nut Muffins
1.5 cups oat flour
1 cup oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup brown sugar stevia (or coconut flour)
1 tbsp pumpkin spice
1/8 cup chopped walnuts
1/8 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup pumpkin purée
1/2 cup sugar free maple syrup (or real maple syrup)
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup almond milk
1 whole egg
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pre-heat oven to 325 F. Mix together dry ingredients (flour, oats, baking powder & soda, protein powder, sugar & pumpkin spice) in a large bowl. Mix together wet ingredients (pumpkin purée, syrup, vanilla, egg & almond milk) in a medium bowl. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients & mix in half the nuts. Let sit for 20 minutes. Prepare muffin tin with parchment paper liners and fill 3/4 full with muffin mix. Bake for 25-28 mins or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
**Can omit walnuts to make nut free for school or daycare! Can also use vegan protein and substitute egg for 1/4 cup of applesauce to make vegan!

@bottlesnblondes Hi. My name is Ashley and I’m a makeup junkie. I love everything about makeup. It’s so beautiful and even the smallest amount can help accentuate your features. Also, there’s just something so damn satisfying about perfectly blended eyeshadow. The only thing I am not a huge fan of when it comes to makeup, is the price tag.

I wanted to recreate my go-to makeup look with all drugstore products. I used some of my every day “high end” products on the right side of my face, and my favourite drugstore products on the left. The only real difference was the price! Though not every drugstore product is an exact dupe, they were all extremely close in comparison. Everything I used is listed below.

Hi. My name is Ashley and I’m a makeup junkie. I love everything about...

@bottlesnblondes I am so damn proud of this body. This body has grown and nourished two beautiful babies. It has carried me through happiness & sadness.  It has pushed me through things I never thought I was capable of doing.  I am proud of every stretch mark, blemish & imperfection because they have made me the woman I am today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I decided to take part in the most recent 12 week challenge with @alexgilmore__  and the Total Package Fitness because I wanted to do something just for me. I had just given birth to my second child 6 months before I enrolled and felt like it was time to make myself a priority again. Being a mother is hard. Taking time for yourself is even harder, but it is so necessary.

Waking up at 5:30 am two times a week to attend bootcamp felt difficult but I can honestly tell you that I didn’t mind. Spending time doing something just for me before my children were even awake felt good and manageable. It gave me such a boost of energy and I could still be Mom all day long.

I did this challenge for me. Although I did lose weight and inches, my primary goal was to spend time investing in myself. Investing in my mental well-being. Doing things that make me feel good. Because I do matter. I am so much more than a wife and a mother. I deserve to feel strong and beautiful.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A new 12 week challenge starts September 8th. Please check out @alexgilmore__ page for further information or feel free to DM us with any questions you may have. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please remember that you are worthy. You deserve happiness. And you can achieve anything.✨
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

@bottlesnblondes My sweet little man. Some days I look at him and wonder how in the world I got so lucky to be his mom. I try so hard to soak up every moment with him, knowing he will only be little for so long. I try to tune out the voice that tells me the floors need to be vacuumed, or the showers need to be cleaned. I try not to look at my phone every time it dings. I try to be present in every moment. But it’s so much easier said than done. All I know is i don’t want to look back and think I didn’t give Mason the best of me. I have longed for these moments mommy moments for years, and I know we will never get this time back.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although it may not sound like much, I am challenging myself to put my phone away daily for at least one straight hour. Please share ways you stay in the moment with us 💙.

@bottlesnblondes I have been trying to commit to putting away my phone each night before bed and picking up a book to read instead. I find I sleep better and I am so much more relaxed when I choose a book over my phone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right now I am in the process of reading “Daring Greatly” by the amazing @brenebrown. I must say it is such a good read and I would highly recommend you also check out her Netflix special, “Daring Greatly” if you have not already done so.

@bottlesnblondes If just for a moment you close your eyes and imagine you are not a mother, wife, daughter, caregiver, or business woman...do you know who you are? What fuels that fire inside of you?

There aren’t enough hours in a day, this we know. We are nurturers by nature, and our focus tends to be on everyone else and rarely ourselves. But taking an hour or two a week for yourself and remembering who YOU are is critical for your own well-being. Your mind, body and soul will thank you for taking the time it needs to recharge.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some of our favourite things to do when making time for ourselves include cooking, working out, watching makeup tutorials, reading, shopping and writing.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We want to know, what fills your cup? How do you make the time to do what you love?

@bottlesnblondes We are totally obsessed with leopard prints this fall season! There is something about this print that instantly makes any outfit look chic. These adorable leopard print mules from @madaboutstyle pair perfectly with a light knit sweater and a leather skirt. A perfect outfit for date night!

@bottlesnblondes Doubt, fear, and insecurity. Words that were part of my inner dialogue for longer than I’d like to admit. Over the years, my weight fluctuated a lot, and after I got married and we started trying to have a baby, that’s when the number on the scale kept getting bigger. We drowned years of infertility sorrows by going out for dinner and drinks quite often, and I rarely made healthy choices. When we finally did get pregnant, I wanted to be as healthy as possible for my baby. I absolutely loved my baby bump, but I was very self conscious of the fact that I was “overweight” and pregnant. I’d often hear “are you sure there’s only one in there” or “you must be ready to pop any minute now!”. However my lowest moment came when I was 24 weeks pregnant at the zoo with my husband and he posted a picture of me, and one of my best friends made a comment on the Facebook post about how big I looked. I cried. Instantly. I deleted the comment and never felt worse about myself.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let me be clear, I am not ashamed of my before body. That body dealt with years of infertility. My body grew, nourished, and birthed my beautiful baby boy. I am proud of every scar and literal twist and turn my body took.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Six months postpartum I had lost the baby weight, but still felt unhealthy. As a new mom, I wasn’t making time for myself and I was burning out as we often do. I decided to take part in the Total Package Fitness 12 week challenge and I’m so happy I did. In 12 weeks, I lost 24 pounds and 23.5 inches. I gained self-confidence, and became stronger: mind, body and soul.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The next challenge starts September 8th and more information is available on @alexgilmore__ ‘s page and website, or message us with questions if you like!

Don’t let doubt, fear or insecurity stop you like it did me. I promise you are capable of more than you know ❤️.

@bottlesnblondes Does anyone else have a house plant addiction 🙋🏼‍♀️ I could spend all day at @shelmerdinestyle. There is something about the lighting, the warmth and all the beautiful plants that just makes me feel so serene. Not to mention the fact that they have the cutest clothes and their selection of home goods is perfection! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

@bottlesnblondes This little girl would wear dresses every single day if you let her, especially if they are pink! Nora has decided that she is capable of picking out her own outfits and dressing herself now- that means there are several meltdowns and it takes forever to leave the house 🙃 Do your little ones insist on dressing themselves?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This beautiful dress by @rose_and_doll is so incredibly soft and comfortable. Katelyn’s pieces are almost as beautiful as she is and her two little girls are so precious! We also have our eye on her rompers since they will be perfect for the fall!

@bottlesnblondes Being a mom is hard. Sometimes it’s not fun. There it is. The thing you’re not supposed to think let alone say it out loud. I remember this moment like it was yesterday. Mason had been up all night screaming with tummy pains for two nights and I had no idea what was wrong with him. Hearing him scream made me borderline hysterical. I was a hot mess. We ended up finding out Mason has a dairy allergy which was causing the issues, but of course at the time, I didn’t have a clue. I love being a mom more than anything in the world. My son is my entire world and there is absolutely nothing I wouldn’t do for him. It’s cliche to say but it’s the best and hardest job in the world. I think sometimes I feel extra guilty in those tough moments because I know how hard we worked to get pregnant. How could I not enjoy every moment of being his mama? I have to keep reminding myself that everyone has hard mom moments.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mason is my heart and soul, but I think it’s ok to not love being a mom every single second of every single day. Please tell me I’m not alone.

@bottlesnblondes My sweet Nora ❤️ Full of sass and spunk.  Brilliant and beautiful. Sweet and gentle. But let me tell you some days she is a complete hurricane and I feel like she is testing me in every moment she can. It is almost like she can sense that I am not on my “A” game some days. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Three year olds are no joke. Some days I don’t know how to handle her. Other days I cannot get enough of her. But I cannot deny how much I love this little girl.

If I have learnt anything from being a Mom to a toddler, it is that you must learn to get on their level- especially when they are losing their marbles. Big emotions and even bigger meltdowns. Sometimes a hug is all they need. So wipe those tears, and go in for a big squeeze. You will be surprised at how quickly they start to calm down. Deep breaths Mama, you got this!

@bottlesnblondes Is there a song from your childhood that brings back happy memories? I remember from a young age, my mother singing to me “You Are My Sunshine”. It didn’t take long for that song to become part of Mason’s bedtime routine. Holding him and singing to him are some of my favourite moments.

I was thrilled when a local business, @youaremysunnshine_  started making sunshine pendants! I fell in love with the sleek design, and having the option to personalize any of their products was a bonus. As a gift to myself for my first Mother’s Day, I bought a sunshine pendant and a vertical bar necklace with Mason’s name on it, and they are some of my favourite jewelry pieces.

Please check out @youaremysunnshine_ to see all of their beautiful jewelry!

@bottlesnblondes This might be one of our all time favorite purchases. We seriously love our @uppababy Vista strollers! After doing extensive research about different types strollers on the market, this one rose to the top for both us. Although it is pricey, it is an investment and has totally been worth every penny!

We basically own every single accessory from @uppababy for the Vista including the rumble seat, the snack tray, the ride-along board and even the cup holder! Our favorite feature of this stroller is the huge storage basket underneath. Seriously, think of all the shopping bags you could fit under there! We even use this stroller to grocery shop which is so helpful, especially if you have a newborn and don’t want to worry about lugging a car seat around. We also used the bassinet that comes along with stroller for all of our babies to sleep and nap in when they were newborns- one less baby item to buy! We cannot recommend this product enough! Well done @uppababy!

Where would/do you use your stroller the most?

@bottlesnblondes I could eat this soup every day- seriously! It is tangy and has the perfect amount of spice. The best part about it is that it is healthy, affordable and so easy to make! You can also customize it any way you would like with the toppings of your choice! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Double tap if you are a soup junkie like me 🙋🏼‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tortilla Soup
1 tbsp olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp coriander 
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper 
1 can 28 oz diced tomatoes
1 can 14.5 oz black beans
1 can green chilies
4 cups of chicken broth 
2-3 chicken breasts
Tabasco & lime to taste
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(This can be made vegetarian/vegan by substituting chicken broth for vegetable broth and omitting the chicken)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sautée onion & garlic until soft. Add spices and cook for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add canned tomatoes, beans, chilies & broth and chicken breasts & bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook chicken for 15-20 minutes. Remove chicken and shred. Blend half of soup with an immersion blender and return shredded chicken and blended soup to pot. Season with salt & pepper as needed and add Tabasco and lime to taste. Enjoy!

@bottlesnblondes Hi everyone! My name is Ashley and I am the other half of Bottles N Blondes. I’m 33 years old, and the mommy to a beautiful 10 month old baby boy, Mason, and my fur baby, Domi. I am married to my amazing husband and we will be celebrating our five year wedding anniversary next month. Our journey to parenthood was anything but easy, but that’s a topic for another day, and a future blog post.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve fallen in love with exercising and becoming the best version of myself. However, I can’t say no to a good glass of red wine. I love hockey and football, and am still completely in love with The Backstreet Boys. And much like Kayla, I may have a small makeup addiction...🤷🏼‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a new mom, I’ve learnt a lot in the last ten months, and there is so much I wish I had known in the beginning. The reality is, I still have so much to learn! I’m so excited to be able to share everything with you, and to learn from all you mamas out there! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Any one else still crushing on boybands? 🙋🏼‍♀️

@bottlesnblondes Hi there! My name is Kayla, I am 32 years old and I am one half of Bottles N Blondes.  I am the wife to my amazing husband of almost 5 years, Sean, and the mother of two beautiful girls Nora, 3, and Wynn, 10 months.

I am a lover of coffee, red wine and a sucker for reality TV (especially Ru Paul’s Drag Race). I also have a passion for cooking and creating new recipes, fitness & nutrition and filling up my cart at Sephora. Who doesn’t?

Since becoming a Mom, finding out about new baby products, researching sleep training methods, and learning about various parenting hacks & techniques have all been things that I have been interested in and anxious to learn more about. I am so excited to share with you all that I have learnt along the way!

My primary goal with this page is to provide a positive space for Mom’s and women alike and share my journey through motherhood. I am looking forward to connecting with all of you!
Xoxo Kayla
